Dramatic and thought provoking, 'Straight from the Horse’s Heart: A Spiritual Ride through Love, Loss, and Hope' by new author R.T. Fitch is an emotional journey that helps readers slip back into the saddle of self-reliance and moral conviction. The fact is, you can learn a lot from a horse. Whether or not you are a fan of horses, these vignettes, of which there are thirty in all, celebrate the very best breeds of human and horse. Through tales of life, death, and spirituality, these deeply felt and beautifully wrought tales prove to be a superb collection of horse-related experiences. From the poetic symmetry of “I Thought It Was the Right Thing To Do” to the fierce loyalty of “She Stole My Heart” and “Whispers in the Night,” the author does something incredibly special with language and human’s relationships with the equine family. He rides at breakneck speed to the place where each of us wants to learn about ourselves. He takes his readers to a tender spot where he has learned to listen to the soft nickering voice of a horse. A must-read for anyone who has ever desired to explore his or her inner self, here is destiny and passion, fortitude and faith. Proceeds to benefit Habitat for Horses.

Will stay with you

posted 5 years ago

You will need three things to read this book. An open mind, an open heart, and a box of tissues. The connection between human and horse is seen from both sides in these stories. From connections between horses, in "Horse Whispers", to the powerful, in "We Were There", and the heartwrenching, "The Silence", I was deeply moved. This book will hopefully, prod you into action for the welfare of the horse and your own soul. Thank you to R.T. Fitch for sharing and showing such love.

Pros: Touching

Cons: None

Beautiful and unique

posted 5 years ago

I just finished this book-then had to immediately read it again! It's one of those books you want to keep and read every so often because, like the best books, you get different insights each time you read it.

The author's voice is unique. Even though each story is different, they flow seamlessly between the voices of the horses and the concerns of those who care for them.

The stories are emotional, but not over-dramatized--sad, but not maudlin--at times graphic, but not gratuitous--plenty of humor, full of happiness, but never sappy.

The overall tone is one of hope--a stoic, timeless, patient type of hope, the way horses experience things.

I got the feeling the horses actually did all the writing! All R.T. did was translate and add some human points of view. But all the royalties go to the horses, so that's fair.

Pros: couldn't stop reading

Cons: not long enough
